Orthopedics

Joint and hip pain is never what you expect. Luckily, our independent team of orthopedic specialists is here to help, offering the most advanced and innovative treatment options for joint issues and pain including MAKOplasty and minimally invasive procedures. Our comprehensive diagnostic services include MRI, CT Scans and other imaging techniques performed by musculoskeletal fellowship-trained radiologists, ensuring accurate interpretation specific to your needs. We offer skilled operating room teams with expertise in hip, knees and joint surgery.  Our orthopedic nurses specialize in joint care. There is an inpatient unit in the hospital dedicated to orthopedic patients. When it comes to orthopedic care, no one treats you better than Chesapeake Regional.

Chesapeake Regional Medical Center offers MAKOplasty for knee and hip pain. MAKOplasty robotic arm technology enables surgeons to perform personalized partial knee and total hip replacement surgery, resulting in fewer complications and a shorter recovery time allowing you to return to your daily activities more quickly.

This technology offers the potential for a higher level of patient–specific implant alignment and positioning to accurately reproduce the surgical plan, an aspect not consistently achieved in manual techniques. Accurate alignment and positioning of hip implants are important factors affecting surgical outcomes and the lifespan of implants.

Services & Conditions

MAKOplasty®

MAKOplasty® Total Hip Arthroplasty (THA), is a procedure known as total hip replacement that is made more precise by utilizing the RIO® Robotic Arm Interactive Orthopedic System. It is indicated for patients who suffer from non-inflammatory or inflammatory degenerative joint disease. RIO® Robotic Arm Interactive Orthopedic System, allows surgeons to achieve a new level of precision with the newest techniques in hip replacement surgery.

How does MAKOplasty work?

If your surgeon determines that you are a good candidate for the MAKOplasty® procedure, he or she will schedule a computed tomography (CT) scan of your hip one or two weeks prior to your surgery date. Then, a patient-specific 3-D model of your pelvis and femur from the CT scan is created pre-operatively to plan optimal implant placement. During surgery, there is a guide called RIO® that aids the surgeon in preparing the hip anatomy and positioning the implants. Real-time data and images allow surgeons to control accurate implant placement.

This technology offers the potential for a higher level of patient–specific implant alignment and positioning to accurately reproduce the surgical plan, an aspect not consistently achieved in manual techniques. Accurate alignment and positioning of hip implants are important factors affecting surgical outcomes and the lifespan of implants.

We offer the following hip options

  • Anterior Hip Replacement Surgery
  • Lateral Hip Replacement Surgery
  • Posterior Hip Replacement Surgery
  • Hip Joint Revision
  • Hip Joint Resurfacing
  • Hip Arthroscopy
  • Repair of Hip Fractures

Minimally invasive hip replacement - superior outcomes

We offer two types of minimally invasive hip replacement: anterior and anterolateral. In anterior hip replacement, a three- to five-inch incision is made at the front of the hip. Anterolateral hip replacement is performed through a small incision at the side of the hip. Your surgeon will help determine which type of surgery is best for you.

Though the two types have different incision areas, they both offer many benefits, including:

  • Smaller incision
  • Reduced pain
  • Faster recovery
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Faster return to normal activities
  • Reduced tissue and muscle damage
  • Less risk of dislocation

Other orthopedic services

Knee

  • Total Knee Replacement Surgery
  • Partial Knee Replacement

MAKOplasty partial knee resurfacing is an innovative treatment option for adults living with early to mid-stage osteoarthritis in the medial (inner), patellofemoral (top), or lateral (outer) compartments of the knee. The benefit of this procedure is that only the diseased portion of the knee is resurfaced, sparing healthy bone and surrounding tissue. 

Candidates for the procedure typically share the following characteristics:

  • Knee pain with activity, usually on the inner knee and/or under the knee cap, or the outer knee
  • Start-up knee pain or stiffness when activities are initiated from a sitting position
  • Failure to respond to non-surgical treatments or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medication

As part of preparation for the procedure, the surgeon uses MAKOplasty's robotic technology to develop a three-dimensional pre-surgical picture of the joint. During surgery, the robotic device provides the surgeon with real-time visual, tactile and auditory feedback to aid in optimal joint resurfacing and implant positioning. It is this precise placement that leads to more natural knee motion following surgery.
